Floyd Mayweather says he wants to train Tyron Woodley for his upcoming fight against YouTuber Jake Paul this summer – and the former UFC star has swiftly taken him up on his offer.
Woodley will attempt to end Paul’s streak of three victories since launching his professional career on August 28, and it looks like he will have the help of the undefeated hall of famer as he plots his downfall.
Mayweather, who is preparing to face the YouTuber’s brother Logan on Sunday night, was left infuriated by Paul last month when he stole his hat after the pair squared off at a press conference, with ‘Money’ chasing after him and leaving him with a black eye.

Paul extended his record to 3-0 after stopping former UFC fighter Ben Askren in April – adding to knockout wins over former basketball star Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib.
And Mayweather, who is widely expected to overwhelm Logan in Miami – is already planning to take down his brother by inviting Woodley to sparring and vowed to get him in shape in Las Vegas.
‘Well, give me Tyron Woodley,’ Mayweather told the media. ‘I make sure I get in camp and train him for this fight.
‘I want Tyron Woodley to come to Las Vegas and work with us.’

Woodley quickly accepted the offer to work with ‘the greatest boxer of all time’ in Mayweather
Woodley was quick to accept his offer, admitting he would jump at the chance to work with ‘the greatest boxer of all time’ and had already been planning to train with him in the past.
‘They just texted me, let’s do it,’ Woodley said at his own ‘I just talked to him today so for sure, why would I not train with the greatest boxer of all time?
‘He’s already my dog and we’ve been talking about training anyway, so for sure. I’m definitely going to take him up on that.’
Woodley was then asked if his fight with Jake would go past three rounds.
‘I’m knocking him out – bad. I don’t care what happens. I’m going to be ready to do it [round] one through eight. The sooner the better.’

Giving his prediction on Mayweather’s fight against Logan, Woodley said: ‘It depends what he wants to do. He can do it quick, he can make it last, he can do whatever he wants. That fight is up to Floyd Mayweather.’
The 44-year-old’s exhibition fight against Logan is slated to be eight rounds – with the pair able to knock each other out, and the veteran boxer had previously stressed he has ‘no strategy’ for the bout.
This week he claimed he could bring his ‘Z game’ and still emerge victorious after the pair went face to face again at a media event for the fight.
‘I ain’t gotta use my A game, my B game, my C game. I can use my Z game,’ Mayweather said at the event in Miami. ‘Don’t even gotta hit him hard. Result’s going to be the same.’
